Every year in October I say that I am going to decorate the tree with all natural decorations. Every year, the same old plastic stuff comes out. I dream of dried orange pieces, felt hearts, pine cones with glitter and some gingerbread salt dough decs with lots of gingham ribbon.
Maybe this year, I may achieve my dream. But I suppose that all of the stuff I have collected over the years will not go up. The little plastic balls with pics of the kids in. The special balls that the kids made etc.
I started it off anyway this year by making a stuffed heart. Cut a bit of card in half to make a heart shape, draw round and cut out two shapes. I did the embroidery first and I know it's a bit wobbly but hey ho. Then blanket stitch round leaving a gap to stuff a bit of wadding, finish sewing up and you have a nice Christmassy heart.
